On November 16th, Avenue hosted a Healthy Day and Garage Sale in partnership with Sam Houston High School and Memorial Hermann.
The goal of the day was to bring exercise and fitness stations for children and adults, in order to encourage them to move and improve their health. We had the opportunity to provide aerobics, weights, boot camp activities, soccer, mini golf and others. The kids really enjoyed getting to move around and learned about the importance of exercising and how easy it can be.
A bright and sunny day, the weather was perfect for being outdoors! More than 20 vendors attended and offered free resources, information and programs related to health to the community. There were also more than 80 stands where community members held mini garage sales.
An exciting addition to this event was a partnership with the Houston Food Bank, which provided food for 350 families! Avenue also provided free diapers, wipes, cream and bags for the first 10 families.
The event was incredible, with over 1,500 people exercising and enjoying all of the activities. Thank you to everyone who participated in this annual event!
